2018 Young Writers Contest

KET is pleased to announce the winners of its 2018 Young Writers Contest. The annual contest encourages creative expression and literacy development by inviting students in kindergarten through eighth grade to submit original illustrated stories, short stories and poetry.

This year, we received more than 1,200 submissions, representing more than 280 schools from 17 states.

We would like to extend a special thanks to our guest poetry judges, Rebecca Gayle Howell, Alecia Whitaker, and Gary Leising, as well as Dr. Nancy F. Hulan, Ph.D. and her pre-service teachers from WKU.
